This is a journal of my vegetable gardens. Skippy was my first dog and he thought the garden was his, even though I did all the work. But Skippy always stood by me and was a great friend. Now Suzie and Charley follow in his footsteps and garden with me. We're located near Boston (USDA zone 6A). I have a community plot, a backyard vegetable garden, fruit trees and berry bushes, chickens and bees. I use sustainable organic methods and do my best to grow all of my family's vegetables myself.

Skippy hasn't posed for a photo recently. I'll have to do this soon. He got a short summer haircut today. He looks real nice.

Wow Kathy, great presentation :-)

I love to do montages too but this month opted for a few videos for a change. I love all of your photos and the way you cropped them too. The colouration through the plants with sunlight is quite magical :-D

I have decided to work my way through the GBBD posts from the bottom up – my posting was late too. I am so glad I caught yours :-D

Enjoy the rest of your week :-D

Wonderful photos - I swear the broccoli looks to be bathed in the glow of a sunbeam straight from heaven! The detail in all of them is just fabulous.

I just love the idea of posting photographs of vegetable flowers, they are so beautiful and often overlooked. Is that a purple podded pea flower??

Thanks for joining in for bloom day. The vegetable flowers are beautiful, gardeners should spend more time admiring the blooms in their vegetable gardens, which can be prettier than some in the flower gardens.
